Neymar tells teammates: I’m leaving Barca

Neymar has told his teammates at Barcelona he has decided to leave the club ahead of a world record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain, say reports in Spain.

El Mundo Deportivo verifies a report in fellow Catalan media outlet RAC1 that the Brazilian informed the Barca squad of his decision upon his return from a promotional tour of Asia on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old has a €222m release clause at the Camp Nou and has already reportedly agreed personal terms at the Parc des Princes ahead of a move which will more than double the world record transfer fee.

The Blaugrana have already reportedly resigned themselves to the Parisians triggering the clause and are powerless to prevent the Brazil star leaving, and now must swiftly target replacement attackers.

It is expected the former Santos man will complete his move to the Ligue 1 giants within the next seven days in an earth-shattering transfer.
